    YouTube - What Scientologists Say About Scientology

    This sci vid's coming up at about 1 out of 4 refreshes of youtube's front page...

    Youtube is seriously crossing the line now... FLAG THAT SHIT! Let's get that taken down!

    Choose what reason you will... I'm finding myself drawn to the 'shocking or disgusting content option'.

    yep, looks like they hate embedding... and ratings... and comments...

    you know what youtube, you fail.
    but you're so useful...

    and it seems that the impersonal army cannot fight youtube... (because youtube just ignores us)

    by the way, what part of the front page is it on?
    can't see it... is it a promoted vid?
    eta: yeah promoted... I don't see it in my ip area... but I'm sure its there by the number of views...
    oh well, we know what promoting a vid costs... and it costs A LOT

    Re: YouTube Puts Sci Propaganda Piece as Front Page Promoted Video!!!

    I listed shocking/grotesque content... (it's almost as bad as some of our own shock images...)

    Ratings, comments, embedding... you have to wonder what the point of the hundreds of thousands of dollars they paid is going to...

    YouTube has AIDS. Tell your friends. Get them out before it is too late.
    Let's see how much YouTube loves Scientology when it goes broke from lack of users.

    Re: YouTube Puts Sci Propaganda Piece as Front Page Promoted Video!!!

    Maybe it just shows up for people in the States, because I don't see it on the front page at all.
  17. Relyt Member

    Re: YouTube Puts Sci Propaganda Piece as Front Page Promoted Video!!!

    Why flag it? It's not breaking any rules. No one's gonna buy that shit anyway. Let them have their little video.
  18. momISanon Member

    Re: YouTube Puts Sci Propaganda Piece as Front Page Promoted Video!!!

    Flagged and fagged. Done and dusted.

    Re: YouTube Puts Sci Propaganda Piece as Front Page Promoted Video!!!

    Completely OT so feel free to tell me to STFU but how does the "Church" account have only ~300 subscribers if it was made in September of '06?

    Also not that sure about flagging stuff that isn't obviously a hardcore trollnut or outing people.
  20. Relyt Member

    Re: YouTube Puts Sci Propaganda Piece as Front Page Promoted Video!!!

    It just seems that flagging it is pretty hypocritical. I can understand flagging videos that out Anonymous, but there's really nothing wrong with this video beyond it being silly propaganda.

    This are war. Fight fire with fire.

    Re: YouTube Puts Sci Propaganda Piece as Front Page Promoted Video!!!

    THIS.

    I have no problem with the "church" speaking out. I'd prefer that they didn't try to stop me doing the same, but as long as no false claims are made, they're free to say what they like.

    There's a good deal of critical material out there, most of it pretty factual. People will come to their own conclusions either way. But to flag Co$ videos is

    (A) stupid.

    (B) hypocritical.

    Re: YouTube Puts Sci Propaganda Piece as Front Page Promoted Video!!!

    Flagged for shocking and disgusting content.

    Vid's still up.

    Re: YouTube Puts Sci Propaganda Piece as Front Page Promoted Video!!!


    Only a few weeks after banning one of Scientology's biggest critics.
    Only a few weeks after giving Scientology a double standard and make a new channel of their own.
    Only a few weeks after Scientology starts trying to buy it's way into YouTube's graces

    ... YouTube is giving Scientology propaganda pieces front page coverage on one of the most visited sites in the world...

    That is a big fucking deal... and it deserves a big fucking response.

    As I have for the last 10 days or so, I get the COS promotion 8 times out of 10.

    YouTube has clearly been accepting money to promote an apocalyptic outer-space cult which seeks to dominate the world and relentlessly crush all resistance.

    Youtube will not take it down, they are in partnership now
  27. Re: YouTube Puts Sci Propaganda Piece as Front Page Promoted Video!!!

    That's the beauty of Anonymous, if you don't want to, you don't have to.
    The choice is yours. Let everyone make up their own mind what is relevant and helpful, and you do the same.

    Re: YouTube Puts Sci Propaganda Piece as Front Page Promoted Video!!!

    They still don't realize that any publicity is bad publicity for them. When someone types in Co$ to see wtf this cheese is they will get roflstomped.
    fail fail and fail some more

    Digg - What Scientologists Have to Say About Scientology

    This parody video hit it big on Digg

    I think that parodying is a better option than mass-flagging. The latter option smacks of "I know I'm right so I'll do whatever I have to to win", which is exactly what Scientologists think. Anonymous generated tons of support because they were on the side of freedom of information. We don't want to turn this into a Us vs. Them war. We'll stop gaining support, because it will be harder to discern which group is in the right.

    Re: YouTube Puts Sci Propaganda Piece as Front Page Promoted Video!!!

    I flagged it as spam, because that is what it is. Just a sales pitch for a big pyramid scam.

    I guess the Google/Youtube motto of "Do no evil" only means "when that evil is done for free".
  38. the_cloak Member

    Re: YouTube Puts Sci Propaganda Piece as Front Page Promoted Video!!!

    I do like this option too, though really we can do both. Just make the flagging make sense. Flag as spam. As for parody, that is our greatest weapon. Turning their fail into our lulz is what has keep this movement going for as long as it has.

    We can at least try.

    Re: YouTube Puts Sci Propaganda Piece as Front Page Promoted Video!!!

    I don't object to their right to speak, but my only means of speaking is to flag it, so I did. I don't for a second think it will get removed, because it's been paid for, therefore it's obviously been seen by Youtube's administration, and is flag-proof.

    Ah well, it doesn't matter. They're using their strength -- money -- and we're using ours -- volume, volume, volume. So be it.

    We just need to keep doing SWOT analyses (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) on both our own movement and the CoS. That will keep us pointed in the right direction, no matter what.

    Stay on target -- don't fight meaningless stats, paid ads, etc. Just go after 'em in public perception, with the government, powerful people, etc., and they're just making noise.
